Strengthening Behavioral Research on Genetic Mental Retardation Syndromes.
Hodapp, Robert M.; Dykens, Elisabeth M.
American Journal on Mental Retardation, v106 n1 p4-15 Jan 2001
This article examines the status of behavioral research on genetic mental retardation syndromes and finds that the field continues to struggle with three methodological issues: (1) how to think about control or contrast groups, (2) the interplay of behavioral phenotypes with development and other within-group variations, and (3) the efficacy of etiology-based interventions.
